It’s not uncommon to face “out of disk space” issue in a data engineer’s daily life, espcically when you are handling instances with default storage size (which is small) on the public cloud. fourtunately, we can always increase the size of a detached disk as you want. However, we still need a little bit extra work to make the chnage visible to our system.
